Volunteering for Girls on the Run continues to be such a rewarding experience for me. Seeing all the great things the organization is doing for young girls really warms my heart. Returning for this fall’s 5k at Wolfe Park in Bexley, I saw some familiar faces from this spring’s 5k, joined by plenty of new participants. The girls are so happy and energized for their run, it’s hard not to leave inspired! I love giving back and I’m so happy to do it for this organization and for these girls. Once they’ve pumped themselves up with happy hair, tattoos, face painting and colorful accessories, and completed a run with the assistance and support of their coaches and peers, I can only imagine having photograph proof of their accomplishment only brings the experience full circle. I always say I wish I had this organization around when I was young!
